Interview with the creaters of 'Shake the Cocktail' Ole Kretschmann & Patrick Frank.
Who created the App 'Shake the Cocktail'?
We published 'Shake the Cocktail' under the lable 'Softsissi'. Softsissi is a label for controversial apps founded 2011. Softsissi is dedicated to creating deeply original apps for your precious (wannebe) SMARTPHONE.
Why did you make this App?
We'll only do stuff that we love and we only do stuff that pushes beyond! To all the people put there: If you are in the app-business or have any ideas or inspiration for apps, join us. We are
artists willing to infuse the app industry with full creative power! Almost million apps out? Who cares! We don't need another business app. Let's make ART.
What did you do before founding 'softsissi'?
Ole Ketschmann: I am a carpenter, a writer, a creative business owner. I am curious about the new technologies and see a lot of potentia for creative endavours. Check out our latest project www.KluuU.com
Patrick Frank: I am a composer, cultural theorist and artist. I am always on the lookout for interesting projects for the purpose of social commitment.
How do people react, when they see 'Shake the Cocktail'.
We see all kind of reactions. Joy, disbelieve, and laughter. Is it just nonsense or do we actually have a message?
As soon, as you enter this thoughtpaddern, you are going the next step, and that is what we are aiming for: dialog and discourse.
'Shake the Cocktail' might not look like that, but that's what it does to a lot of people.
Oskar Wild said: Art is the only serious thing in the world, while the artist is the one who is never serious.
